Marine Mammal Conference


Four of our researchers have been accepted to present at the prestigious Conference on the Biology of Marine Mammals hosted by the Society for Marine Mammalogy. This year’s conference is in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada from the 22 – 29th October 2017.

Dr Kate, Nicola, Chantel and Justine all were successful and are super excited about attending this major international conference, getting MMF’s research on a world-stage, with numerous networking and collaborating opportunities!

Your support will help the research team make the journey from sunny Melbourne to wintery Canada!

An amazing 1275 abstracts were submitted for the conference and 299 reviewers from across the globe reviewed them. Conference organisers are anticipating over 1500 scientists, managers, policy makers and student delegates will come to this meeting from 65 countries to discuss cutting edge marine mammal science and conservation strategies from around the world!

The conference theme is “2017: A Marine Mammal Odyssey, Eh!” is about reflecting on the journey that marine mammals and the people who study them have taken together over the years, and the voyage that still lies ahead.
